The Old Testament concluded with a prophecy of John the Baptist who would prepare the way for the Messiah. Four hundred years later that prophecy is fulfilled. John will go before the Lord in the “spirit and power of Elijah” to
“make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
The heralds are on the scene of world history: Gabriel, Zacharias, Mary, Elizabeth, John! A new day is dawning, the Sun of Righteousness is rising (Malachi 4:2)! The Word is here, the Light has come…And to those who received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name!
It is a great day for the world.
